I’m a Greek New Zealander, having lived in Wellington from a young age. I went to Clyde Quay school, Wellington College, and obtained a Psychology degree at Victoria Uni. and a dental degree at Otago. I have been in private practice in Wellington for over 30 years and in London for 4 years.  I find dentistry very exciting and the ever- evolving science, art and technology that lets us help people to be more healthy is most stimulating.

I was one of the first Wellington dentists to provide dental implant treatments in the late 1980’s, and have had an ongoing interest in restoring broken and worn down teeth, and improving compromised smiles, and have made thousands of these restorations over my career.

With the arrival of revolutionary digital technology and CAD-CAM dentistry in the past 15 years or so, my enthusiasm has grown further and my enjoyment of  patient treatment has increased even further!

I bought my first Cerec system in 2008 and after a few upgrades I am now using the latest generation, called Primescan. It’s awesome to get positive feedback on a daily basis from my clients who are delighted at the technology and the fact that treatment can be done on the spot, with no need for a second appointment.

Apart from the technology, there have been many changes in the management of dental problems, with many new techniques and materials helping to make treatment easier, more comfortable and more predictable.  I make a commitment to ongoing education, which I consider is essential to deliver the best treatment options for my clients.

My special areas of interest are in:

Guided Implants

Dental Rehabilitation
Cosmetic Dentistry

Gerodontics

KASI       DSA

 

Hi my name is Kasi and I am a dental Assistant for Great Teeth! Before becoming a dental assistant in 2019 I worked as a Bartender in a local Wellington bar for just over 2 years.

I grew up in a small town in Taranaki for most of my life before moving to Wellington 4 years ago to take grasp of city life and what it had to offer!

Working  in the dental industry had sparked my interest for quite some time before I joined the team at Great Teeth!

To me no day is ever the same. Everyday there is something new to learn and observe! Being able to  expand my skills and knowledge in dentistry has me excited to come to work each day.

Personally I love being able to help our patients feel confident and comfortable in our practice. To be able to help each patient with their health and cosmetic needs, through a positive and friendly dental experience is an extremely rewarding feeling!

 NIKITA          DSA

Hi, my name is Nikita and I am a Dental Assistant for Great Teeth Dental Care.

Before joining this practice, I worked as a Groups/ Events Travel Agent, as well as on the COVID-19 Health-line during the pandemic.

I currently hold a Diploma in Tourism and Travel Management, and, most recently, I’m advancing my goals as a dental support health professional, by completing dental assisting certification via the New Zealand Dental Association.

In my downtime I enjoy baking, walking in the outdoors, dancing and spending time with my family and friends.

I’m excited I was able to pivot to a new profession I now feel so passionate about! I find dental assisting such a fascinating and rewarding job. I’m proud to be in the service of others, promoting the best possible health outcome for each Patient. Every day is different, which allows me to learn and grow, and further develop my skills. It means a lot to work in a profession where I can truly make a difference!
